Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 7 Up-Time traveler Michele Windsor thought she left the love of her life behind in 1910 in Timeless (Delacorte, 2011), so she is shocked to find him enrolled as a student in her elite New York City school. Even more perplexing, Philip doesn't seem to recognize her, despite the close connection they shared in the past. As she tries to sort out the mystery of Philip's reappearance, another issue arises: Rebecca, a rogue time traveler with a grudge against the Windsor family, appears. When Michele loses the key that allows her to travel through time, she is trapped in the present, where Rebecca is plotting to do her harm. With the help of friends from the present and the past, Michele must thwart her nemesis and solve the mystery of her own origins and Philip's apparent reappearance. The strength of this book lies in its plot, with plenty of twists and turns. However, most of the secondary characters are fairly flat and the writing lacks polish. Devoted fans of the first book may want to read this volume, but for everyone else, it's strictly an additional purchase.-Misti Tidman, Licking County Library, Newark, OHα(c) Copyright 2011.

From Booklist

Michele Windsor is an orphaned child born of time-crossed parents, an anomaly that should never happen. Her father was a Timekeeper who could time travel at will, and Michele has inherited his abilities. She found, and then lost, her true love, Philip, in 1910, and is now living a somewhat hollow life in contemporary New York while trying to avoid Rebecca, a vengeful ancestor with an extreme grudge. Then a boy who looks just like Philip transfers to Michele’s exclusive boarding school, and their time lines begin to converge and split as everything Michele knows changes. Choppy writing and multiple points of view in several time periods make for a somewhat confusing narrative, especially for those who haven’t read Monir’s first novel, Timeless (2011), but the sheer desperation of Michele’s quest to reunite with Philip is compelling. The setting—Manhattan, both turn of the century and contemporary—stands out clearly as the true centerpiece of this love letter to the opulence of the Gilded Age. Grades 7-10. --Charli Osborne

Always the perfect gift
